Party Decorations

Last weekend I threw a sewing birthday part for Capricious. We had a great time!

Here is a recipe for the Sangria we had.

Peach-Riesling Sangria
750-ml bottle dry Riesling (I actually used a sweet orange flavored white wine)
1 1/2 cups white cranberry-peach drink
1/2 cup peach schnapps
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (I used about 6 table spoons of frozen lemonade concentrate)
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 vanilla bean, split lengthwise (I skipped this)
2 1/2-inch-thick lemon slices
2 1/2-inch-thick orange slices (I added extra oranges)
2 peaches, cut into wedges (I went with frozen peaches)
10 fresh raspberries
3 cups ice cubes (I skipped the ice and just refrigerated instead)
I also added about 3/4 of a can of Sprite

Mix first 5 ingredients in large pitcher. Scrape in seeds from vanilla bean; add bean and stir to blend. Mix in fruit. Cover and chill overnight (I chilled for about 4 hours). Mix in ice and serve.

Here are a few of the decorations!
